“The fruit of the Spirit is…”           Galatians 5:22

I like this reminder of what my life could look like if I am allowing God’s Spirit to dwell in me. “I will be:

1.            Loving toward others

2.            Full of joy

3.            An advocate and live for peace

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”        2 Corinthians 12:8


Weakness is NOT the most idolized personality quality desired by humanity. But for some reason, Paul flashed it in neon colors this morning (literally—the verses I’m talking about are highlighted in my Bible in neon green!)

“If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.” 11:30

“My power is made perfect in weakness.”  12:8

"I resolve to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1

After yesterday comes the assurance of today. Because of Easter; because of the resurrection; because of the ascension; because Jesus IS alive and the Father accepted what He did for us, there IS now NO condemnation BECAUSE we are IN Christ. THAT is the reason I am a Christian. THAT is the reason I love my Savior so much.

“Surely this was a righteous man.”           Luke 23:47

Friday of that weekend long ago was the day Jesus died. Killed for the “sin” of claiming to be who He really was. And the only one who seemed to have gotten it was one of the Roman guards. His followers seemed to have made up their mind so thoroughly on what they expected from their king that they appear to have missed Jesus’ purpose entirely.

“Return to Me and I will return to you.” Malachi 3:7

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”   Psalm 8:1

Malachi can wait! I just experienced a full lunar eclipse! It was pretty cool! You can see more pictures on Facebook. This was one time when I wished I had a really nice camera because the scene was majestic (and the light was a bit lacking!) See attachment for my best attempt with my little camera!

“The righteous will live by HIS faith.”       Habakkuk 2:4

First a necessary correction from an astute reader of yesterday’s GMU- all I did was leave one word out! “But, true to the God I continue to learn to know and love, He was NOT done with His people…”

Sorry for any theological confusion! Now I’ll try again today:
